    Exclusive: Amazon scraps bundled video service - sources

    NEW YORK/LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) has scrapped plans to launch an online streaming service bundling popular U.S. broadcast and cable networks because it believes it cannot make enough money on such a service, people familiar with the matter told Reuters. The world's largest online retailer has also been unable to convince key broadcast and basic cable networks to break with decades-old business models and join its a la carte Amazon Channels service, the sources said and has backed away from talks with them. The reversals come a month after the abrupt departure of Roy Price from his job as head of Amazon Studios, the company's high-profile television production division, following an allegation of sexual harassment, which he has contested.
